As open government initiatives and models were focussed upon at an annual summit in London under the auspices of the Open Government Partnership last week, India did comparatively better in yet another international report on open government data released on the occasion.

In this report, 'Open Data Barometer', which evaluated countries on the basis of "the context, availability and emerging impacts of Open Government Data (OGD)", India was ranked 34th among 77 countries.
